ANOTHER ONE
  I have just recently completed my 13th season as a professional basketball player. This season also included some changes. I had to leave home earlier than I ever had to leave before. I’ve abroad longer than usual. Even with these changes, this season has definitely been great for many reasons. Coming into this season I prayed continuously to return... Read More

GUESS WHO’S BACK?

GUESS WHO’S BACK?
Thirteen years into my professional basketball career and I find myself in a very familiar place. That place is Japan. In 2007 I signed my first contract overseas that would actually have me out of the country for an entire season. I signed with a team in Sapporo, Japan. Yes, as in Sapporo the beer company.

Behind The Bench…The Wife’s Perspective​
Thanks to reality TV and social media, being a “basketball wife” has become a stereotypical fantasy. Yet, people have no clue about the day to day highs and lows of how this type of career impacts the entire family. In reality, being in this role, doesn’t only consist of putting on cute little outfits to go to basketball games, lunching... Read More

Lending a Helping Hand

Lending a Helping Hand
Becoming a parent is one of life’s greatest gifts. I have been blessed enough to receive that gift twice in the form of a beautiful little girl and a handsome little boy. As my wife carried our children, we were constantly in prayer. Not for the sex of the child, but for the health and well being of our kids.... Read More

Change Starts at Home

Change Starts at Home
I usually can sit in front of my computer, think of a topic, and write openly and easily about what’s on my mind. This time it wasn’t so easy.
